We’ve Moved!


We Luv YVR.


For our Vancouver, BC friends, we’d love for you to stop by our booth at Pride Fest this weekend.

We’ll be giving away tons of goodies, along with our partner Travel Portland. Room nights, tours, show tickets and more.

P.S. For a great line up of events, here is a website we suggest you take a peek at : LINK LOVE.

Vancouver BC, Here We Come!


We can’t even begin to tell you how much we love Vancouver BC Pride.


Maybe it’s all the fantastic events. Or the really awesome people. The annual fireworks show on English Bay.

Or the fact that we get to be in beautiful, sunny Vancouver BC for the weekend.

It doesn’t really matter cause we LOVE IT ALL and we’re heading up North next weekend to see our Canadian friends.

We hope to see you there too!

Come by and check out our booth at Pride Fest – we’ll be giving away room nights, condoms, bottle openers that also act as a nightlight and key chain (huh??), prizes from Portland and more (in no particular order!).

We love you and hope to see you there. xoxo, Jupiter Hotel

PDX Latino Gay Pride is Coming!


Live ‘la vida loca’ with PDX Latino Gay Pride!

Three big events over the span of two days will definitely give you time to

celebrate and enjoy life in P-town.

Latino Gay Pride is located at the Jupiter Hotel, so make a weekend of it by booking a room and partying with us from dusk to dawn (and then from dawn to dusk!).


The Festival is the highlight of the PLGP celebration and brings together nearly 800 – 1000 attendees each year. The main stage has a line up of traditional and cultural performances, local & regional entertainers, community leaders, public officials, and non-stop DJ music. Delicious Latin-style cuisine as well as margaritas, cerveza, and a signature cocktail keeps everyone in a festive mood. The Sponsor Exhibit and Vendor Area includes community resource information, volunteer opportunities, local and national businesses.
